nanopos

npm release MIT license Pull Requests Welcome IRC

A simple Lightning point-of-sale system with a clean & minimal web UI.

  • Optimized for places selling fixed-price items (like coffee shops, falafel stands or barber shops), but also has an option for billing custom amounts.
  • Small codebase (~60 server-side LoC + ~70 client-side LoC), great starting point for developing your own Lightning Charge apps!

Powered by Lightning Charge.

See demo video here ➤

Setup

$ npm install -g nanopos

$ edit items.yaml # see file format below

$ nanopos --items-path items.yaml --charge-token mySecretToken --currency USD
HTTP server running on localhost:9116

Running with Docker

Nanopos includes a Dockerfile to allow for fast setup using a docker container based on node:carbon. To run from the container with port 9116 exposed, first setup Lightning Charge, then build the image with:

$ docker build -t elements_project/nanopos .

and then run with:

$ docker run -p9116:9116 -e CHARGE_URL=http://[charge-url]/ -e CHARGE_TOKEN=[access-token] elements_project/nanopos

That's it! The web server should now be running on port 9116 and ready to accept payments.

Example items.yaml file

tea:
  price: 0.02 # denominated in the currency specified by --currency
  title: Green Tea # title is optional, defaults to the key

coffee:
  price: 1

bamba:
  price: 3

beer:
  price: 7

hat:
  price: 15

tshirt (S):
  price: 25
  metadata:
    shirt_size: S

The metadata object will be added into the metadata of invoices for this item.
